Before the king Sigismund III left for Sweden once more. General sejm in Warsaw. 1598.
The sejm was convened in December 1597 and the pre-sejm sejmiks were held in January and February 1598. The sejm debated from 3 March to 13 April 1598. Florian Gomoliński, chamberlain of Sieradz, was elected the marshal of the Chamber of Deputies. There were debates over numerous demands of the king, concerning raising money needed to pay soldiers’ pay, protecting borders with Ottoman Empire and Tatar Khanate, relations with Moscow (the peace treaty expired), political system of Livonia and then finally the juridical matters and examination of royal demesnes. The king was allowed, what he particularly cared about, to travel to Sweden.
